  1. Ok i have a folder in my hard drive that is not shown but actually exists, and its not a hidden folder. I know it exists because when i enter the location of the folder, it comes up. When i go to actually try to find the folder in that location, its not there. For example, the folder "E:\Games\duke nukem 3d" exists and i can browse it when i enter it up at the top of the windows explorer thing, but i cant find it when i go to E:\Games\. Thanks
